The Canadian War Museum is Canada’s national museum of military history, and offers a wide range of meaningful learning opportunities for students from kindergarten through senior high school. Programs are designed to help students discover how war has affected them and their country, and support Ontario and Quebec curricula in the areas of history, geography, language, the visual arts and social studies.

“Excellent program! Hats off to our animator. Kept twenty nine 15 year olds very interested and focused for over an hour and a half. Thank you.”
-Gisèle Girouard, Grade 10 teacher, Regiopolis Notre Dame Catholic High School
